Radial Shockwave Therapy Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy ESWT Treatment for Heel Spurs & Back Pain
Shockwave therapy is a multidisciplinary device used in orthopaedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine, urology and veterinary medicine. Its main assets are fast pain relief and mobility
restoration. Together with being a non-surgical therapy with no need for painkillers makes it an ideal therapy to speed up recovery and cure various indications causing acute or chronic
Mechanism of Action
Shockwave is an acoustic wave which carries high energy to painful spots and myoskeletal tissues with subacute,subchronic and chronic conditions. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative
processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. Shockwaves are characterized by jump change in pressure, high amplitude and non-periodicity. The kinetic energy of the projectile, created by
compressed air, is transferred to the transmitter at the end of the applicator and further into the tissue

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment. The application is simple and easy. Initiate therapy in 3 steps:
1.Location of the area to be treated (The area to be treated is located using palpation in order to deliver the therapy precisely)
2.Gel application (Sufficient amount of gel is applied to the area located in step 1. Use of gel is necessary to transfer the acoustic waves efficiently and smoothly)
3.Therapy initiation (The shockwave applicator is slightly pushed against the area to be treated and the start button is pressed)
Will Shockwave therapy help me?
Most patients with chronic pain problems have been through various unsuccessful types of treatments. Up to 80% of the same patients worldwide report that Shockwave therapy has helped them
eliminate their problem.
Does the treatment hurt?
There may be a slight feeling of discomfort during the treatment, depending on the level of pain the patient is already experiencing in the area. However, since the treatment lasts only about
five minutes, most patients are able to tolerate this discomfort. Additionally, the intensity of the treatment can be adjusted throughout the session.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments varies depending on the indication and tissue response. The effect of the treatment is cumulative, so you will typically need more than one (3–5) treatment. Very often
though, you will experience relief right after the first treatment.
How often will I need the treatment?
The therapy session takes about 15 minutes depending on the disorder that is treated. In general, 3-5 sessions are necessary at weekly intervals. The greatest success rate when dealing with
problem areas is achieved by following a 12 week treatment program
Will I feel any pain after the treatment?
Most patients will experience an immediate pain relief following the treatment. However, within 24 hours after the treatment, they may experience some soreness in the treated area. This
soreness has been reported as tolerable and not limiting.
Are there any restrictions after the treatment?
It is recommended that patients refrain from physical activity, especially one that would involve the treated region, for about 48 hours following each treatment session.
